    I have .avi files (the office) on my computer harddrive. I burned a DivX video disk with toast 8 and put the DVD Divx disc into my Samsung DVD player that supports DivX. The problem is - when i load the disc in the DVD player it loads the episodes, then it says loading DivX file but then i get a "file not compatible", can AVI files not be burned as a DivX disc or what?

    DivX codec undergoes some updates every now and then. It is possible that you have a newer version of DivX used in your AVI files, while your Samsung player is only comptible with the older version. This is just a guess though...

    Did you specifically choose DivX Disc in Toast? under the Video section?

    Try this...

    1) Choose Video category, DivX Disc.
    2) Add you AVI files
    3) Make sure the options in the left area for DivX Encoding says "Always" (not Automatic)

    Burn your disc... test in the player... setting this to Always will reencode your AVI files to make sure they are compliant DivX files.

    If this doesn't work... try this...

    1) Choose Data category, ISO9660.
    2) Add your AVI files

    Burn your disc...

    Let me know which works.
